Introduction: Retinal detachment (RD) is a potentially blinding disease. The epidemiological characteristics of this disorder could help to understand the factors influencing its incidence. Purpose: To investigate the laterality of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) and the differences between right and left eyes. Methodology: All RRD cases in...
Article
Purpose: To compare the thickness and stromal optical density (OD) evolution of the flap and cap after femtosecond (FS-LASIK; Visumax) and small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE), respectively, for myopia correction. Methods: A prospective study comprising 78 eyes (n=39 per group) was performed. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography...
Article
Purpose: To assess the relevance of the homogeneity of femtosecond laser (FSL) flap thickness regarding induction of higher order aberrations (HOAs). Setting: Clínica Rementería & Clínica Novovisión, Madrid, Spain. Design: Prospective, observational study. Methods: Two hundred thirty-one patients who underwent in situ keratomileusis using fi...
Article
Purpose: To describe the postoperative evolution of visual acuity, flap morphology, and stromal optical density femtosecond laser-assisted laser in situ keratomileusis (FS-LASIK). Setting: Clínica Rementería, Madrid, Spain. Design: Prospective case series. Methods: The study comprised 44 consecutive eyes that had FS-LASIK performed with the...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose To describe and compare the stromal bed roughness obtained after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) flap creation using a corneal femtosecond laser platform (iFS 150) and a “dual” femtosecond (FS) laser platform (LenSx). Methods This ex vivo experimental study was conducted in an animal model using 12 freshly enucleated porcine eyes, six...
Article
Purpose: To compare postoperative evolution of visual acuity, flap thickness, and stromal optical density during the first 3 months after femtosecond (FS) laser in situ keratomileusis surgery for correction of myopia using the iFS 150-kHz FS laser and LenSx FS laser platforms. Methods: This was a prospective case series. Thirty-nine eyes treated...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: Diagnosis of tuberculous uveitis (TBU) is often challenging and is usually made after excluding other causes of uveitis. We analysed the characteristics of TBU and variables associated with visual outcome. Methods: A retrospective, observational analysis was performed in patients with presumptive TBU who were started on specific TB trea...
Article
Purpose: To estimate the incidence of dry eye (DE) and to evaluate risk factors in an adult cohort in Spain. Methods: The Salnés Eye Study (SES) was a cross-sectional population-based study of 654 subjects conducted from 2005 to 2006. After 11 years, 264 individuals (65.8% response rate) participated in SES 2. The incidence cohort consisted of 2...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: To compare the 3-month postoperative refractive results and flap thickness homogeneity after correction of myopia using the Intralase femtosecond platform and the Victus dual femtosecond laser platform. Setting: Novovision Clinic, Madrid, Spain. Design: Prospective case series. Methods: Eyes treated with a 60 kHz femtosecond laser (...

To assess ocular involvement in the pathophysiology of autosomal dominant compelling helio-ophthalmic outburst syndrome (ACHOOs).
Article
Full-text available
Objective: To assess ocular involvement in the pathophysiology of autosomal dominant compelling helio-ophthalmic outburst syndrome (ACHOOs). Methods: An interview was conducted with a Caucasian family that showed clinical features of ACHOOs. Twelve of them had photic reflex and were recruited. A complete eye evaluation was made. Results: A dom...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: To describe an unusual presentation of Foster Kennedy syndrome (FKS; unilateral optic nerve atrophy with optic nerve edema in the other eye) with optic nerve atrophy and retinal vein occlusion. It is an example of how common clinical features can hide a rare condition or presentation of a disease. Foster Kennedy syndrome is uncommon. Ther...

Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is a vaccine that can be instilled into the urinary bladder as immunotherapy against superficial bladder cancer. Several case reports have implicated intravesical BCG in the development of uveitis. Patients treated with BCG therapy may present with systemic symptoms resembling reactive arthritis and, less frequently, h...

We report a case of acquired night blindness in a developed country (Spain) without risk factors for nutritional deficiency disease or family history of hereditary retinal disease. A 76-year-old woman presented with acquired night blindness of 6-month progression. After a thorough inquiry about eating patterns she becomes suspicious of vitamin A lo...
